I went to Gibert about eight years ago, and I tried to intern in one of my teacher's classroom. Which I had reached out to, and she was happy to have me intern in her classroom. But it seems like I was unwelcomed when I tried to reach out to the staff that was working here, they were too busy to help me to get the requirement paper work signed. As alumni, I found it disappointing, but thank you for all of my teachers for all that you do!
